With Apple’s latest WWDC developer conference event held earlier this week, most of their announcements were of course overshadowed by news of the latest iPhone 3GS. Amidst some other major announcements such as Mac OSX SnowLeopard, and some shiny new MacBook Pro’s, Apple also released the latest version of their Safari web browser. Bringing it up to version 4, along with the status of “the fastest browser in the world”.
The fact that many applications grow in size and become more bloated with each release means that a browser that can run web applications faster and make user interfaces more responsive on any computer is a big deal for the end user.
Along with dramatic user interface improvements to the Windows version of Safari 4, other new features include a revamped “Topsites” feature and making great use of CoverFlow for browsing through your bookmarks or current tabs with maximum eye candy.
